“Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and white supremacists were “repugnant” to everything Americans held dear”
President Trump’s belated condemnation of the white extremist groups is a little too late, his first instinct speaks more about his thought and his statement in over 48 hours later looks like a damage control exercise or force by his PR team.
Shortly after Trump statements, Richard Spencer, the White Nationalist and Supremacist leader told reporters that he doesn’t think President Donald Trump condemned his movement on Monday.
The implication of the belated response by Trump is that the likes of Richard Spencer and Jason Kessler will hang on to his hesitation as a form of encouragement.
Richard Spencer admitted that Trump is not an ally but consider him the first authentic nationalist in his lifetime, and he believes the arrival of Trump on the political stage is responsible for the progress made by the groups in the last two years.
